Owner description: The Blue Baths is a beautiful heritage listed Bathhouse located in Government Gardens, Rotorua. An iconic feature of the city, the art deco Blue Baths daringly offered mixed sex bathing for the first time in a public facility in New Zealand, way back in 1931. Nowadays visitors can take a self guided gallery tour of the Museum or a dip in the historic geothermally heated pools. The building is also used as a venue for weddings and other special events. In the Lido Lounge (once the Adult Pool) seasons of original, homegrown theatre feature throughout the year. Summer 2106 see's The Choice (Jan 23 - Feb 26) directed by Jennifer Ward-Lealand, storm the stage. A cleverly scripted parody of the current cult of TV talent shows, The Choice showcases an outstanding line-up of kiwi talent. Än Auckland theatre critic says "Wickedly written, slickly performed and cleverly directed to parody the current talent show phenomenon that dominates our airwaves, The Choice is undoubtedly the funniest show I've seen for a long, long time. In fact I can't remember the last time we laughed so much until we wept. And yes they were definitely tears of joy watching the brilliant cast on stage at The Choice at the Blue Baths in Rotorua" Sharu Delilkan - Theatre Scenes.

Were we ever surprised and pleased we bought tickets to this show. My husband and I had seen it advertised in other years but never bothered to go. What a mistake!!! This is a polished, superbly costumed and sophisticated show, well up to the standards of anything we have seen overseas. It is slick, sassy and the singing is excellent. A nice touch of humour with the skilled gay magician, and a real sense of involvement with the audience. We had already dined,but platters were available, as were drinks. Don't miss it.

I have been to several shows here at The Blue Baths and I am always impressed with the amazing extravaganzas they put together. The latest one The Comedy Cabaret was just fabulous, what a fantastic night out. The performers are very talented, the singing and dancing is amazing, the staff are friendly. I just cant say enough about this place. Love it.

Absolutely fabulous. It was a great show with something for everyone. Great value for a 2 hr show, especially if you are under 25 at only $25. The cast were very talented, the numbers great and the venue and wait staff were very accommodating. We didn't book, but might pay to as not many free tables. A must do.
